I was going to say something like that: bat
ancestors likely didn’t start off with the highly developed echo-location, but had to coevolve this with prey (and others) that we’re trying to avoid being a meal. It was likely an arms race rather than the moths being plunked down with already sophisticated bats...

However, this is simply a “just so” story. To figure out how the moths evolved their countermeasures, one would have to actually look at and analyze what data there is on moth evolution.
